Pleased to be able to offer my slightly left-field take on five great and significant alternative alternate history novels via this innovative and interesting site…
Pleased to see that Song of Time has finally made it into Italian, and with a blurb that gets the novel pretty much bang-on…
My short story Selkie, an alternate history take on the lead-up (or not) to World War One and war in general, with an added twist of Celtic folklore, is now available to be read online here. Great also to see (and contribute toward!) a thoughtful take on military SF…

Pleased to announce that my new short story The Chronologist has just gone live on Tor.com. It’s set in a town where the clocks actually control time rather than merely measuring its progress….
Happy to say that, after a long gestation, the new New Worlds collection is finally available for pre-order, and will be out in August. Honoured to be among contributors including Alan Moore, Michael Swanwick, Lavie Tidhar, Ian Watson, Paul Park, James Lovegrove, Gwyneth Jones and the great Michael Moorcock himself. The teenage me who loved this magazine would be extremely chuffed – and so am I!

So pleased to see that my piece The Mrs Innocents has made it to feature story on the rather lovely front cover of the latest edition of Asimov’s Magazine. It’s an alternate take on some significant events in modern history, and I’m rather proud of it.
Very happy to be on board with this brilliant, and timely, anthology with my story The Family Football.
Roll up, roll up… Here’s a chance to bag some great reads and also support the best of British SF and Fantasy, not to mention its writers. Curated by Lavie Tidhar, this is a fantastic bundle of brilliant and award-winning literature, including my own novel Wake Up and Dream…
